Bruce Wallace is program manager in the DARPA Strategic Technology Office (STO). He is responsible for programs investing in technologies for multifunction millimeter-wave systems. Upon retiring after 33 years' service in the government at the Army Research Laboratory as Chief of the RF & Electronics Division, he formed his own consulting firm, MMW Concepts LLC, which consulted on millimeter and submillimeter-wave technology for the government, industry, and academia.

A Fellow of the IEEE Geosciences and Remote Sensing Society, Wallace received a Bachelor of Arts in physics from the Johns Hopkins University in 1971 and a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Delaware in 1984.
